BETTIS™ roots go back to 1929 when it was established as an oilfield supply house and manufacturer’s representative. The company later evolved into a manufacturing organization, becoming a pioneer in the valve actuation business. Today, BETTIS is the world’s leading independent manufacturer of pneumatic and hydraulic valve actuators. BETTIS products are used in almost every energy related industry including on and offshore oil and gas transmission, petrochemical and petroleum refining. Other significant markets include chemical, power industry including nuclear, pulp and paper, food and beverage, pharmaceutical, textile and water systems. The company has potential in virtually any market where valves are operated automatically.
Our new headquarter is currently located in Houston, Texas and covers our manufacturing, research and office facilities.
Since BETTIS inception, it has continuously expanded both its physical capacity and its product lines. Its growth has come, in part, from the acquisition of some of the world’s most reputable actuator manufacturers with a myriad of offerings and specialties. As a result of these acquisitions, BETTIS now operates plants worldwide coupled with a global sales and distribution network unmatched in the industry.
Acquired in 1990, Erichsen, now BETTIS Canada, has a strong reputation as a leader of gas/oil pipeline operators in Canada. By coupling the company’s outstanding products with its own global sales network, BETTIS expanded Erichsen’s geographic scope into many of the world’s most active gas pipeline markets. Since the acquisition, BETTIS has expanded the Canadian plant three times, increasing its size from an original 32,000 square foot plant to 88,000 square foot operation.
In December of 1996, BETTIS became a part of Daniel Industries, Inc. Daniel manufactures a broad range of flow measurement and control devices, principally for the energy industry.
BETTIS was integrated into the Emerson group of companies in June 1999. The company’s significant growth has taken BETTIS to a global corporation with more than 90 million USD in revenues and over 600 total employees. BETTIS is a Total Quality Management Company with the most complete product offering in the valve actuator industry.
